WGN Raises $800,000+ for Tornado Relief
WGN Radio and
its sister media — WGN(TV) and Chicago Tribune — raised some $800,000 for
tornado relief for the Nov. 17 tornadoes. The station raised money on Nov. 26.
The multiplatform effort brought in about $550,000, and a
matching grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation added $250,000.
Contributions will be accepted until the end of December.
Funds raised will be distributed to nonprofit groups involved in areas affected
by the tornadoes.
